I’m agnostic, should i be walking the Camino de Santiago?

Agnostic pilgrim

The question was:

I consider myself an agnostic, from a catholic family. I have agreed to join my Uncle on his journey.

He has been travelling from Le Puy in several stages. He was travelling with a friend who can no longer continue. The last stage, for which will be joining him is from Santander, along the northern route.

I am doing the journey for several reasons; firstly to accompany my 73 year old Uncle and because i believe i will simply enjoy the journey, the countryside, Spain’s food, culture and north coast. I’m very much looking forward to it.

Am i wrong for contemplating this journey? I will obviously respect other’s travellers faith, but I am a little anxious about undertaking this journey as a ‘non believer’.

I’d appreciate your opinions & advice.

  1. Non believers or believers, it wouldnt matter much. What matter is the experience u’ll gain from the trip.

  2. I did Camino twice. On my way i met a lot of different people. Not only Christians but also buddist, non believers… It doesnt matter if You believe in Christianity. Camino is for everybody, no matter what You believe in :))

  3. Go enjoy every minute the people, places and scenery its for everyone its a gift to be savored and enjoyed.
